The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman

I have a bit of an indifferent relationship to Neil Gaiman’s writing — he’s great with high concepts (American Gods was a great concept); I find his characters and actual writing not always that interesting. This book is really in the vein of the Harry Potter books — a book aimed at mostly young adults that’s sort of a fantastical story about a boy who grows up in a graveyard and then does some uncommonly courageous stuff.

Fun book to pass the time — doesn’t take too long to read. Won’t change your life or anything, but not bad.
